Nokia's stock hits 16 year low after report of Lumia 900 problems and Q1 earnings

Also affecting the stock is Nokia's Q1 earnings report which we reported to you earlier today. The report contained a warning about margins for the next quarter which is leading stockholders to sell their Nokia shares. Finally, a bearish story about Nokia on the Wall Street Journal's widely read online site could be catching the eye of investors.
The WSJ piece notes that the problems that Nokia is having on the high-end trying to compete with Apple and Android models is being repeated in its low-end markets in India, the Middle East, Africa and China. The financial paper notes that low priced featurephones for those regions have been Nokia's "bread and butter" and cheap Android models from ZTE and Huawei are taking that low hanging fruit away from the Finnish company. Gartner's industry analyst Roberta Cozza saud, "We’re seeing that many consumers on emerging markets are shifting towards low-end true smartphones, rather than feature phones, and Nokia doesn’t have much to offer in this space."
The WSJ story ends with the ominous thought that Nokia will need to compete against iOS and Android with cheaper Windows Phone models, in "a quicker pace" than anticipated.

Nokia Lumia 900 must be expected to produce some good results in Q2. Come on Nokia make it to all big carriers so that it reaches more people. All the best! Want some good competition in US! Put an end to duopoly. People need more choices :)

Nokia should've not gone exclusive to windows phone. They shouldn't have shut android out. Btw, the lumia 900 is one ugly phone.

Not looking good for Nokia. How the Mighty have fallen. I still can't believe why they partnered with Microsoft when Google's Android offers so much more. I hope Nokia turn this around but as long as they stay with Microsoft I simply can't see how they can do this within such a constricted ecosystem that is Windows Mobile.

The 900 is a ugly phone? wow, so you just called almost every major review critic a idiot! Because almost eveyone praised the phone design and look. But all are free to their opinion no doubt, but please if this phone is ugly, what phone do you find attractive?

@gharatnikhil, you mad because the lumia is ugly and it's a flop. Don't get mad at me woman. The phone is ugly plain and simple IMO. See dummy, IMO is the key.
